Class 1 equipment has a protective earth & also relies on insulation between live parts & exposed conductive parts.

Class 2 equipment is either double insulation or reinforced insulation between live parts & conductive parts.

Class 3 equipment relies on the fact that no voltages higher than safety extra low voltage (SELV) are present, thats 25v ac & 50v dc.
Class 3 equipment is either supplied by a selv transformer or is battery operated.
